Mid-Del, Shawnee among districts with multiple alums in NCAA Women's Tournament
BY RYAN ABER
Five former Mid-Del standouts will be playing in the NCAA Women’s Tournament, which begins Saturday.
Midwest City is the only team in the state with three alums whose teams are playing in the tournament—Ashley Clark (Tulsa), Richa Jackson (Duke) and Kaylon Williams (Oklahoma). Williams suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in October and is out for the season.
Clark, a freshman, is averaging 5.8 points in 20.2 minutes for the Golden Hurricane. Jackson, a junior, averages 5.6 points for the Blue Devils.
Del City has a pair of alums playing in the tournament—Oklahoma State senior Toni Young and Fresno State freshman Toni Smith.
Young, the Cowboys leading scorer, averages 15.9 points and 10.1 rebounds. Smith ahs played sparingly as a freshman, averaging 4.6 minutes per game in 17 games.
Smith’s teammate, Cache’s Taylor Thompson, is a starter for the Bulldogs and averages 10.2 points.
Fresno State is the only out-of-state team in the tournament with more than one Oklahoman on the roster. South Carolina features Norman’s Ashley Bruner and former NEO standout Wilka Mountout.
The other two state high schools with multiple representatives in the tournament are Shawnee and Tulsa Washington.
Tulsa freshman Kelsee Grovey was a regular starter a year after helping Shawnee to the Class 5A title. Grovey averages 10.5 points per game.
Taylor Cooper, who teamed with Grovey on that state title team a year ago, has also had a big impact as a freshman, starting every game and averaging 10.2 points.
Tulsa Washington’s Taleya Mayberry averages 18.7 points for Tulsa while former teammate Kamri Anderson, a junior, averages 8.0 minutes per game for Oklahoma State.
